Some training in the remote western part of the Teanaway map, which is basically a new map for my purposes. Much of this area is within the burn zone from a couple years ago; by the time I was finished my face, arms, and hands were fairly covered with charcoal markings, like Rambo. For some reason I lost focus after 10 and started daydreaming, which caused problems. 12 I just missed for no real reason other than general carelessness, and at 13 I didn't find any boulder, though I searched around a bit and was certainly in the right place. I guess it got burnt up in the fire. Generally nice terrain, if steep and a bit junky in places. It should be faster than this, as I wasted >10min on 11, 12, and 13.

Since orienteering isn't a thing anymore, I have some other goals for the summer. One is to do a century ride. Another is to knock out a bunch of the local "basic" hikes that I've long neglected (like Pilchuck), as well as some of the more notable ones further afield which are longer and more involved.

Hiking 1:05:31 intensity: (4:49 @1) + (24:46 @2) + (35:18 @3) + (38 @4) 2.4 mi (27:18 / mi) +695m 14:22 / mi
ahr:122 max:170

Didn't go to work today, so instead solo hiked up Mount Pilchuck. Exceptionally high payoff for relatively low effort, as the trailhead is already like 2/3 of the way up the damn mountain. From the top I could see Mount Baker ~50 mi to the north, Columbia Tower and other buildings in downtown Seattle ~40mi SW, and Mount Rainier ~80mi S.

It was quite snowy after the first mile, but I had Oroc 280s with spikes which worked beautifully. I encountered numerous rubes slipping about in hiking boots and tennis shoes.

Dunno if I will keep doing these pin-flag courses; they don't feel very productive, as the terrain is not good and some of the controls are pretty bingo-y. Then again, it's easy to get to from work, and if nothing else it's something different to do.

I had thought to jog the first course and run hard the second one, but for some reason my body didn't have the ability to run hard. Have been feeling lethargic and low-energy the last couple days, not sure what's wrong.

I changed my awakening from 7 to 6:45 this morning, because on Friday I had to hustle to make the 7:35 train and I'm pretty sure I very slightly tweaked/strained my hamstring. Turns out a 3-4min uphill bike sprint first thing in the morning isn't great for the legs.

This is reminiscent of some of the dumber sports injuries one hears about, i.e. celebrating a home run, falling in the shower, etc. A Mariners pitcher was once injured carrying a suitcase up a flight of stairs (though it was strongly rumored this was a cover for something sketchier). Seems like these usually happen to baseball players.

Old morning schedule:
7: wake up
7-713: lay in bed
713-717: get out of bed
717-724: search for misplaced bike shorts
724-725: find shorts, get dressed, make lunch, pack bag, leave

New morning schedule:
Everything moved up 15min, so 15 more min to do the last part. Maximum efficiency.
3 PM

Cycling 46:47 intensity: (40:21 @3) + (6:24 @4) + (2 @5) 14.68 mi (18.8 mph) +87m
ahr:144 max:180

Legs tired today.
